Sometimes we need to be saved from ourselves. For those Pokemon Go addicts who couldn't seem to stop themselves from playing absolutely everywhere -- no matter how somber or sacred the place -- there are now some boundaries.
The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in Japan and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum are now Pokemon-free, after the game's developer, Niantic Labs, honored the institutions' requests to remove all traces of the game at those places. The Associated Press reported the news earlier Monday. A spokesman for the Holocaust museum confirmed it's no longer a Pokestop, nor are there Pokemon in the museum.
Arlington National Cemetery is still in the game, though it requested to be removed several weeks ago, according to a spokeswoman.
The wildly popular augmented-reality game surpassed 75 million downloads less than three weeks after its release in early July.
Niantic Labs did not respond to a request for comment.
Update, 9:15 a.m. PT August 9: Added comment from Arlington National Cemetery.
